Last week, Rajnikanth starrer movie Lingaa was released, which happened to be the birthday of the superstar. The movie started with a big bang giving loads of collection in its first weekend itself. The movie was able to collect 101 crores in just three days, thanks to the huge fan following of Rajnikanth not just in south but also in other parts of the country, which helped to garner this figure. Lingaa was released in big number of screens in different states on 12th December, while it got an earth shattering response over the ticket counters with occupancy reports reaching to around 100 percent.
After the seven days, the movie was able to garner a whopping 219 crores, while the very next Friday with the release of PK, the collection was hampered, which went to around 17 crores. If you check the collection worldwide, the figure for Lingaa simply went incredible. For Sonakshi Sinha, it was the first time for her to act in opposite the 62 years old megastar. The other release last week called Main Aur Mr. Right was lost somewhere with a very poor start, thus making it a dull and dump movie at the end of its first week.
